There are times when efforts to protect one's reputation goes beyond the pale into dumb acts. This is an example. The Washington Redskins are trying the patience of fans and earning a reputation far different than they would like. There is no good reason for what they are doing. Football teams depend on their fans and expressions of support or dismay from their fans as well. It's time for the team to relax and let matters be. There will be protests and there will expressions of support. Squelching protest will only make it stronger, as the Redskins will find out.
